Force of Savagery Discussion

You could count Force of Savagery as well if you broaden your criteria. You can cast it no matter what, but it will only stay if you can increase its toughness.

I might keep Splinterfright, with Nemesis of Mortals, but I'd probably rather play Hooting Mandrills or add a few more keywords and use Soulflayer. Off the top of my head Gladecover Scout and Hired Poisoner plus your already existing creatures with trample could give a pretty scary Soulflayer.
Varolz, the Scar-Striped is great if you are using something like Hunted Horror, Death's Shadow, Force of Savagery or even Yargle, Glutton of Urborg, so might be worth considering. This does mean shaping your deck to try and get Varolz, above all...
In such a creature heavy deck Throne of the God-Pharaoh would also make sense and if you choose to use delirium Traverse the Ulvenwald would be a good way to fetch your finisher. There is a but, graveyard hate is very common in modern, so you need a plan that lets you adapt if your graveyard is exiled, honestly this is where something like Throne is really useful, since you can still cast your creatures.
Hope this helps with your brew.

I really like this idea, but it doesn't look like most infect creatures work with Varolz too well. For Varolz to get max value, you want creatures well above the power curve.

Really like the way you built this deck with high-power low CMC green creatures. Phyrexian Soulgorger and Force of Savagery are other options you could try. Elemental Bond and Garruk's Packleader help you draw cards, and Cream of the Crop improves card selection. Traverse the Outlands ramps a lot when you have Grothama or Mossbridge Troll. Druid's Call, Broodhatch Nantuko, and Saber Ants are great for generating tokens from fighting, which you can then upgrade with Emrakul's Evangel anyway.
Bloodspore Thrinax and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood makes your small creatures not so small. Vigor will help grow your creatures permanently, and the price is much lower with the reprint. Overwhelming Stampede and Pathbreaker Ibex turn Grothama's power into trampling power for all your creatures.
I feel like Conjurer's Closet, Dragon Mask, and Mogg Cannon aren't too mana-efficient, and they only draw cards at the end of your turn so you can't use the cards right away. You could add Reliquary Tower since you're already running other cards with that effect.

Find as much as you can with an excellent power:cmc ratio..
You could use some Dredge or self mill techniques to get stuff straight to your 'yard.
Aim for the creatures that you want to keep on the board to have trample since they'll be stacked with +1/+1 counters, and/or use Overrun effects (Pathbreaker Ibex, Decimator of the Provinces, Craterhoof Behemoth).
Phew, I'm spent for a bit now. Over to someone else!

I've been trying to perfect my Varolz, the Scar-Striped for a number of years now, and these are the cards that I would recommend for the deck as they have been outstanding in mine. If you were interested in the completed list, this is it I'm Counting on the Dead
as many 1CC mana dorks, as they are ramp, sacrifice for regen, turn 2 varolz, and a creature to scavenge
if you go dredge route, any dredge cards
Force of Savagery: fat for cheap
Kalonian Hydra: hits hard, and fast after you scavenge onto it
Mwonvuli Beast Tracker: many big creatures have trample, or you can search up some hexproof creature to scavenge on
Sylvan Safekeeper: "free" protection
Hunted Horror: lots of counters for cheap
Skullclamp: cash in mana dorks for draw
Jarad's Orders: really broken in this deck and on curve after commander when you look for Elvish Spirit Guide & Phyrexian Dreadnought because you can swing right away using the mana the guide gives you.
Survival of the Fittest: broken, broken, and more broken in this deck
Death's Shadow: huge power burst for cheap
Phyrexian Dreadnought: huge power burst for cheap
Walking Ballista: a machine gun when you scavenge onto it
Entomb: search for fat thing to scavenge
Berserk: broken finisher, and you can regen the destroy part

I just realized that Phyrexian Dreadnought and Force of Savagery would work quite well in a deck like this. Compulsion is also worth worth playing around with. Very nice deck, though. You got a +1 for the name alone, lol,
